By Michael Pope

Despite the Republican sweep of statewide races in Virginia, Democrats in Alexandria are celebrating victories in local elections.

Democrats maintained their dominance in Alexandria, winning all of the local races for House of Delegates. Democratic candidates for sheriff and commonwealth's attorney ran without Republican opposition.

Republicans have already started the process of recruiting new candidates to take on the Democrats next year.
